Sun Country announces 6 new, non-Minnesota routes

The Eagan-based company is expanding to other airports.

Sun Country announced 6 new routes on Tuesday – and the most notable thing about them is that none involve Minnesota.

Despite flying the vast majority of its routes from MSP Airport, the Eagan-based carrier revealed six new routes to Florida from three different airports.

Two of them – Madison and St. Louis – it has never flown routes from before, while it is also expanding its presence at Dallas-Fort Worth Airport.

The new routes will be between those three cities and Tampa and Fort Myers in Florida.

The nonstop, seasonal services start from the end of September in Madison, and in October and November in St. Louis and Dallas/Fort Worth.

"The addition of Fort Myers and Tampa allows us to offer Midwest travelers even more choice and value when making their vacation plans," said Ben Brookman of Sun Country Airlines.

Despite none of the routes involving MSP, Bricker told the Star Tribune it's "still good for Minnesota" as it helps the company build a strong base that allows it to grow and continue to hire.

The newspaper notes Sun Country is acquiring five more airplanes by the end of August to help with this expansion.
